Sleeper Picks and Predictions for the DuraMAX Drydene 400 presented by RelaDyne NASCAR Cup Series Race on May 1, 2022
Where: Dover Motor Speedway, Dover, Delaware
When: Sunday, May 1, 2022, green flag at 3:00 PM ET
Daniel Suarez (+4000)
Suarez is looking to make noise this week after not creating any last Sunday, when he settled for a 31st place showing in the 2022 GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway. Looking to get it going again, Suarez must be feeling excited about his prospects of winning his first win of the season in the 2022 DuraMAX Drydene 400. For one, Suarez has a decent 13.2 career average finish at Dover Motor Speedway. The last time he raced there, Suarez finished ninth in the 2021 Drydene 400.
Cole Custer (+10000)
The Stewart-Haas Racing driver isn’t having a brilliant season, but that shouldn’t keep bettors from zeroing on him. After all, Custer has been a strong performer at Dover Motor Speedway, albeit in just three career appearances there. In those races, Custer has managed to place 10th in each of his last two races. He debuted on that track in the 2020 Drydene 311 in which he placed 11th.
Erik Jones (+10000)
Jones just had his best performance in nearly two months last Sunday, as he finished sixth in the 2022 GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway. He’s winless at over Motor Speedway so far in his NASCAR Cup Series career, but he’s got a pair of top 10s in nine starts there. His best finish in Delaware was fourth during the 2018 Gander Outdoors 400.
